The air suspension of the C250 b.z.w. The C300 is especially comfortable on open roads on the motorway and on cobbled streets. The brake feels typically “Mercedes” and engages when the upper part of the pedal is pressed. If you suddenly turn the steering wheel, you notice that the rear suspension is not long enough. With the more powerful and heavier C400 it looks completely different. It comes standard with all-wheel drive. Combined with the heavier V6 engine, it’s clear that the balance falls more forward. In contrast to the C250 b.z.w. C300, the steering was not very remarkable. The ride was both rocky and rough, but all the more comfortable. The gearbox could use changes and the suspension would need a change. The trunk that doesn’t always close and the air conditioning that doesn’t want to blow cold are things that made a negative impression. Since the Mercedes-Benz C-Class 2015 but does not officially come onto the market before September, Mercedes still has enough time to carry out corrections.
